Avon Holiday & Christmas Collection for 2017
When my son was a toddler, a close family member of ours “Tata” would always give him cute holiday gifts that he always looked forward to receiving. Whenever a holiday came along, his Tata would bring him toys that would sing & dance, holiday decorations or jewelry. One day I asked her, “Where do you get these cute gifts?” and she said, “Avon!” That brought me back to when I was young and remembered the Avon collectibles & gifts back then. My mom would never miss an opportunity to purchase those” now famous” Avon collectibles as gifts. My father had vintage cars, golf clubs, and chess pieces all in cologne decanter bottles, as well as beer steins and other gifts marked as “Avon Exclusive”. I remember receiving holiday jewelry, animal shaped soaps, figurines, dolls, and holiday decorations that were so unique you couldn’t find anywhere else. That was so long ago but it just goes to show you decades later, Avon is still delighting customers with their holiday gifts & collectibles.
You can still find Avon Collectibles on occasion in the Avon catalog & website; they will be marked as “Exclusive”, “Special Avon Edition” or “first-to-market” items. Some Avon Collectibles will sometimes come with a certificate of Avon authenticity. They can also be branded or licensed products, numbered items such as Avon Steins, seasonal / sentimental dated items, or items designed exclusively for or by Avon. The top selling Avon collectibles are (in order): figurines, dolls, plush products, collector’s plates, ornaments and steins.
Avon Collectibles, Seasonal Gifts and Inspirational items have always been a highlight in the Avon Catalog. I always look forward to browsing the catalog during a holiday season. Whether it’s Valentine’s Day, Easter, Halloween, Thanksgiving, or Christmas, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day or any other holiday, you can always count on Avon to have something that will make the season fun & festive.
You can find Avon Holiday & Seasonal items before and during the holiday as well as after the holiday has passed. Past seasonal items are usually featured in the Avon Outlet catalog and clearance sections of the Avon Brochure and are usually on clearance, sometimes up to 60% off. I like to take advantage of the holiday clearance sales to give me a head start for the next year.
So the next time a holiday comes around don’t forget to check the catalog or website for unique Avon collectibles and gifts you, your family & friends will love.
